E Ink is best known for the e-paper displays found on the Amazon Kindle and Barnes and Noble Nook. The company has been heavily invested in PRISM technology which allows the display to switch colors in nearly any pattern, shape, speed and sequence, making it the ideal technology to transform the commercial, hospitality, transportation, healthcare, retail and education market. Right now it is primarily used in architectural design such as product displays, sculptures, tables and even walls. E Ink has slowly been refining Prism and have made a breakthrough, there are now 7 new colors.
The following new colors have been added to Prism; Voyage (dark blue), Daydream (cyan), Blush (red), Sprout (green), Zest (yellow), Harvest (brown) and Waltz (black). Manufacturers and designers will now have the ability to integrate new colors of Prism into architecture materials to create dynamically changing environments.
E Ink Prism utilizes the same patented bi-stable ink technology as E Ink’s current line of eReaders, wearables and shelf-labels. However, unlike traditional E Ink films that use only black and white pigments, Prism includes color pigments in larger size films and include fully programmable, fully reflective, low power consumption and rugged.
